hi, i dont know how but i have adware in my computer, i try to delete it and
it comes back. internet explorer will open and go to "mynbx247.info" and
download 180search assistant and many other programs, by itself. I have
updated and ran adaware 6.0, spybot, and yahoo anti-spy, they find the same
things each time, i fix them and it comes right back. Any help would be great
Thanks

Try doing your scan in safe mode without networking and with the latest
definitions.

Just in case you don't know how to access safe mode:

Adaware 6 is pretty dated (more than 1 year old).

Download Adaware SE 1.06 from http://lavasoftusa.com and make sure you get
the latest definitions before you do a scan.

I'd also recommend you download Microsoft's Antispyware application and run
that as well.

It is available at

What is the signature date on Adaware when you run it? Also look for
Spybot Search & Destroy. v1.3 is the latest. And of course let it
search for updates.

Your version of Adaware is out of date. Download, install, update and run
all of the following.

Ad-Aware
http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

Spybot search and destroy
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

Microsoft Windows AntiSpyware (Beta2)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyI...

If none of the above fixes the issue then download Hijack this, run it, save
a copy of the log file and cut and paste it back here to the group so that
it can be analyzed.

Hi pcbutts1

Just a small correction on what you responded with..

Microsoft AntiSpyware is actually still Beta 1 (but it has been refreshed a
couple times).

Could you resolve this problem?
I met a same problem these days.
But I could repair it.
If you couldn't do, you'd better following.
- Find "ZoneEdit", file name is qegdd.exe, in your system
- If you never use it, vote it.

I could repair this problem by this way.
